Salt Lake Temple, USA

beautiful official card! I LOVE the colour of the sky, and the white-blue contrast...and I love the reflection of the Temple in the water in front of it!



US-2254864

The special thing about this official card is that it is from dear Katie, whom I've known for a long while and who used to be my penfriend as well (when I had the time for it..unfortunately as time went by I realized Im just not up for it..but that's a whole different story =)

Katie chose this lovely card for me, showing the Salt Lake Temple, at the centre of Temple Square, which took over 40 years to complete and was finally finished in 1893. The neo-gothic structure is open to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints, and the detailed architecture, grounds and extensive surrounding attractions are free for public viewing. (from the back of the card)

and as a good friend who knows how much I love stamps, Katie did her best to put a bunch of them!
At the top right is a Forever stamp issued this year, showing Lydia Mendoza, one of the first and greatest stars of Tejano music. Next to it is another Forever stamp, this one issued in 2011, in a set of 16 Go Green stamps, where this one here promotes composting. And then, vertically you have three more stamps. The well-known American clock one, underneath is the Silver Coffeepot issued in 2007, and at the bottom is the American Toleware, also from the same set of definitives issued in 2007

I love Salt Lake City and it's beautiful environs, have been there many times on business. I have neved been in the temple but have seen it from many perspectives when visiting the city. Very visible when flying into Salt Lake too.
